Pre-race routine:

Got up around 7, drove the 2 hours to the race site, parked, registered, took a shit, let the dog take a shit, got changed into racing outfit, pinned on my number and chip..had some shitty coffee, banana, and honey nut cheerios bar on the way...
Event warmup:

Just .75 miles slow, plenty of stretching, also played Childish Gambino's "Sunrise" a whole was really cold, so didn't do that much...
  • 1h 02m 43s
  • 8 miles
  • 07m 50s  min/mile

Overall, felt strong and together, eyes watered b/c of the cold...interestly, my nipples chafed bad...glad to see I had enough in the take for an 8 mile, although this was probably less...
What would you do differently?:

Not do a squat workout the day before...lose weight...

Warm down:

Nothing, just stretching and getting warm, stupid tactic though

Weight, gear, mental

Event comments:

Great race, although distance was not really 8 miles, probably 7.5 or 7.25 really...lots of volunteers, nice people..setup does a great job, as course and trail runners are nice and encouraging...
